Vickers was an actress, singer and one-time Playboy centerfold. Her film appearances were mostly inconsequential–an uncredited part in Sunset Boulevard and a supporting role in Attack of the 50-Foot Woman were among her movie credits. But Vickers’ eerie death eclipses her semi-prominent career.
Vickers’ mummified body was found inside her Los Angeles home on April 27, 2011 after a neighbor became concerned after noticing a large pile of yellowing mail in her mailbox as well as spider webs across her front door. Authorities indicated that her mummified body suggested Vickers could have been dead for nearly a year; the exact date of her death is unknown. The Los Angeles County coroner’s department confirmed that Vickers had died from heart failure. The 82-year-old was known to be reclusive and had not been seen in public for some time before her passing.
